HUNTINGBURG — Incidents related to the stormy weekend drew out members of the Huntingburg Volunteer Fire Department on Friday evening and Saturday morning.
The first callout, at 6:24 p.m. Friday, involved the report of smoke coming from a tree on an electric line at West First Street and Long Cove Drive.
Fire Chief Scott Patberg said a scorched limb showed where arcing had occurred upon the department’s arrival.
Huntingburg Municipal Utilities was called to the scene to clear the line.
Three trucks and 14 firefighters were on the scene 10 minutes.
Then, at 8:47 a.m. Saturday, the department was called to Southridge High School, 1110 S. Main St.

Five trucks and 17 firefighters were on the scene 25 minutes.
